Experience nature

Have a picnic in the shadow of towering cliffs.

Explore the hiking trails and mountain paths.

Visit the waterfalls and caves, bird watch, fish or canoe or simply unwind, in a place where the silence sings.

Soar above the world

Climb to the top of the Verwulf mountains and see the vast undeveloped mountain vistas of Lesotho to the south of you, and the manicured fields of South Africa to the north.

Stand where dinosaurs roamed

Genuine 190 million year old dinosaur footprints can be seen on one of the hiking trails. The prints are very clearly defined and belong to the Theropod family.

Not to be missed!
